Kmart Floral Dresses and Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull MM

Most of my outfits follow a similar formula - bargain clothes and splurge worthy bags! These two are no exception, with the cheap and cheerful floral dresses from Kmart (both under $25) paired with my Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull tote (which costs almost 100 times more than the dresses ).
Makes a very simple, if expensive, outfit for a hot summer day!

What I wore:

Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress with waterfall jacket Louis vuitton neverfull | awayfromblue
floral maxi dress with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | awayfromtheblue
Jacket: no label white drape jacket
Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
Shoes: Novo Tawny rose gold sandals
Bag: Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Found this old white waterfall jacket in my wardrobe when trying to organise my new wardrobe room (post and video coming once I have it setup the way I want!). It's survived a few wardrobe declutters and it's many years old but it's only been worn a handful of times. The last time was back in 2016! It is a nice simple, lightweight cover up that will go with everything, so that's why I keep justifying keeping it despite how little it's worn. I did enjoy wearing it with this maxi dress, it was a good way to cover up the spaghetti straps and keep warm in church. So for now, it's staying in my wardrobe, and if I don't wear it any time over the next month I'll be donating it.
Kept the accessories simple, and since the Louis Vuitton neverfull tote has gold hardware I went with my rose gold accessories - these strappy sandals and the filigree heart necklace. Simple outfit for the morning at church and a quick stop at Bunnings.

Why I wore it:

Completely outfit repeating here! While it's the first time I've worn the neverfull tote with this dress, I've worn the mustard and gold earrings with it before, and the rose gold sandals. Also wore the same sandals in the first outfit! Wanted a slightly dressy option for our family photo.
For the past few years we have been taking our annual family Santa photo at the RSPCA "Santa Paws" event. It's a great way to get a pic of the whole family, including our dog, and we use the photos for our Christmas cards each year. We were prepared this year, and I wore this for our family photo back in November. Our little one had gotten over his Santa fear a few days before Christmas last year, and we had a tablet lined up with a pre-downloaded video to capture the boys attention. Bag of tricks packed ( this neverfull holds so much!) I was feeling confident this year about getting a good photo.
All was good until we actually sat down next to Santa, and the tears began and both the photography staff and Cooper were terrified. Our poor pup, he'd been enjoying the Santa cuddles just moments before! In the end we worked on a comprise and Santa went away and hid so we could get a picture without him. Boys and dogs now calm, Santa snuck up behind us for the final pic and we finally got a good shot. It seemed even more stressful than last year, and I'd thought we were so prepared! I think we may need to look into a Santa-free photo next year! I did like my outfit at least, even if the day didn't go as smoothly as planned.

How You Can Wear It:

A floral dress is a classic option - in a midi or maxi length! With a bold and colourful print, you don't need to accessorise much, and a go-with-everything tote and metallic accessories create a simple outfit.
